away from romney in places like ohio. i'll tell you based on my anecdotal evidence and some of the e-mails i get from readers who say, i think i'm going to vote for obama, that vote is not strong or locked in. some of those numbers that you guys were putting up just a little bit ago about the economy, and the barack obama and romney being close on handling of the economy and the state of the economy, i think a lot of those voters are sitting there waiting for one of these candidates to make a case to them why they would do a better job with the economy. i think they're waiting for mitt romney to explain to them why barack obama has failed in his handling of the economy. jenna: one of the things you wrote about in your editorial you say politicians, no matter what party, they see the economy in two ways. as a personal piggybank or as a mystery and neither will discuss it in public. what do these two candidates do during the very important debates, the first one starting next week? >> obviously barack obama does not want to talk about the economy while he was president. his one word ex

president obama. and mitt has a plan. he says he's going to go out and tell the truth. >> i think the president will not be able to continue to mischaracterize my pathway and so i'll be able to describe mine, he will describe his and people will make a choice. >> karl rove loves the idea. he wrote today in the "wall street journal," "mr. romney must call out the president and set the record straight in a presidential tone." sounds good. and romney's taken his advice to heart. in fact, he says there are three issues he needs to correct the president on. here's the first one -- >> when he says i was in favor of liquidating the automobile industry, nothing could be further from the truth. my plan was to rebuild the auto industry and take it through bankruptcy so that could happen. >> oh, really? romney's starting with an easy one here. we know exactly what he thinks about the automobile loan. because he wrote about it in 2008. romney said, let detroit go bankrupt. he said, federal money could kill the automobile industry. but the cash injection did what? the absolute opposite. automa

president obama, 42% mitt romney. we asked dean reynolds to tell us more about the medicare factor. >> the first step to a stronger medicare is to repeal obamacare. (boos) because it represents the worst of both worlds! >> reporter: a week ago when republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan spoke about medicare to the american association of retired persons in norls he got an earful. >> the law turned medicare boo into a piggy bank for obamacare! (boos) >> reporter: that frosty reaction is borne out in new polling, both by cbs news and others which found more people thought the president would do a better job handling medicare than governor romney. the "washington post" and kaiser foundation surveyed voters in virginia, ohio, and florida. in those states that found that majorities of 56%, 59%, and 65% support maintaining medicare's current system of benefits. in flagler beach, florida, walt mazie has some serious questions for romney. >> i think romney will turn the economy around but it's the other issues that we don't know about. >> reporter: like what? >> like the medicare

companies, president obama has not yet reviewed it similar legislation failed to pass the senate earlier this year. as the hack attacks have spread. remember, sources tell the fox business network that hackers recently targeted the web sites for several major banks including chase, bank of america, meantime, listen to secretary napolitano's response when a reporter asked her about her personal cyber security. >> don't laugh, but i just don't use email at all. >> really? >> yeah, yeah. >> because it's too time consuming or for security purposes? >> um, for a whole host of reasons. so i don't have any of my own accounts. [ laughter ] >> she is the one. the secretary says it's her own personal choice. the apple's ceo tim cook today, wow. an apology for the company's new mobile maps. apple's new software no longer comes with standard google map application that is so awesome. instead, apple inserted its own which does not include street view photos or directions for mass transit. and the 3-d feature creates some strange thing on the screen. it's just chalked full of weirdness. today

obama. that's standard. they had to explain how a guy like that got elected. in a story they decided to tell themselves was that george w. bush had not been conservative enough. in a way he had. the prescription drug program, but their conclusion was he gave conservatism a bad name, and because it had a bad name, it gave rise and made people susceptible to obama. >> hence the tea party. >> what they decided to go was go extremely far to the right. you had a two-front war, one against obama or one against any that strays from ideology. mitt romney can embrace the ideology that the republican party embraced post-2008, which is poisonous to an election. paul ryan budget, they're not running on the paul ryan budget. i don't know why they put him on the ticket. >> oh, my god. >> you can do what mitt romney has done. stay away from that stuff as much as you can and you can run this message of, hey, i'm the protest vehicle. if you're unhappy where the economy is, vote out obama. that's the better calculation. we're just finding out that's not enough, but the alternative is worse. >> the altern
